Wildlife Conservation Science & Policy

Dedicated to the social and political aspects–the so-called "human dimensions"–of wildlife management

Jeremy Bruskotter is an assistant professor in the School of Environment and Natural Resources at the Ohio State University where his research interests are centered around the “human dimensions” of wildlife conservation and management.  Jeremy is passionate about wildlife–at one time or another, he has called himself hunter, angler, and wildlife photographer (though he currently has little time for any of these hobbies).  Most of all, Jeremy is concerned with bringing the tools and techniques of the social sciences to bear on pressing issues in wildlife management, and making sure that this research is accessible to wildlife professionals and interested conservationists.  This site is dedicated to that task.

    Mr. Bruskotter name is Shannen Stitt and I am co-director of the My Pack of Wolves Sanctuary. We are a non profit 501 (c)(3) tax exempt organization based in NE Ohio. Please see our website at http://mypackofwolvessanctuary.org/. We are also on Twitter and Facebook. I read your article entitled “Is Interest in wolves waning?” and I too share this fear. We are striving to be one of the largest wolf sanctuaries/rescues in the state of Ohio and currently trying to raise funds to do so as well as trying to get publicity to our cause. We have an alpha pair of wolfdogs that we bred 3 years ago and realized that we could not part with the pups and decided to not breed but rescue. Because of the new exotic pet ban coming into effect next year there are people who believe they have a real wolf and rather than pay the taxes,fees,and insurance on it are “letting it go”. The odds of course are that they have a hybrid because wolves are rare to Ohio. Letting these animals of course is ridiculous and causing some panics in some of the emails I have received. Our goals is to help these animals and those pure wolves in neighboring states that have been mistreated and just need safe homes. Thank you for your article in bringing attention to their plight. The media does misrepresent them and worldwide education is needed in their support and your article contributes to that. We thank you!
